For the last several years, my wife Erin and I have been blessed to help lead FCA Huddles at our local high school and middle school. One of hte trends we have seen over the years is that one year a school will be up and another will be down in huddle attendance and then the next year it will switch.
This year we are in one of those years where our middle school huddle is really booming with 30 to 40 students attending each week. The kids are eager to attend and we have had some truly great interaction with them. Our high school huddle on the other hand is in a bit more of a down year. We have about 6 to 8 students who attend faithfully and we are truly thankful for the growth we have seen in their lives. At the same time it has been very disheartning at the high school as each week I have seen many kids who have came to FCA in the past and even attended leadership camps with us, just walking the hallways and not coming to our huddles. Most of these students I have been able to speak with and invite back and thankfully they aren’t coming because of being upset or anything like that. Honestly, they don’t really have any reason other than not making the effort to be there.
Please join me in faithfully praying for all our FCA students, but especially the high school students. Pray for the ones that are faithful and wanting to grow in their walk with Christ, that they wouldn’t be distracted and sidetracked like it seems so many other students have been. Pray for the students who are not attending, that God would become a priority in their life. We would love to have them back at FCA, but more than anything want to see them strive to grow in their walk with God and impact their schools for Christ. And lastly, pray for a group I haven’t event mentioned, our students who have graduated and are in college that they would continue to seek fellowship with other believers and grow in their relationship with Christ.
